THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Season 2 Episode 43
Kingsley came back to Nigeria trying to reach Linda on phone but her number was switched off. So he decided to go to their house.
Meanwhile, Linda had gone to Vivian’s house for a tremendous reason known to her alone. They were in her room, on the bed operating the same laptop but Linda wasn’t active enough. So Vivian closed the laptop and asked, “Babe, you don’t look bright. At least you should be happy that Kingsley is back”
“I don’t want to see him or even hear his voice. That’s why i put my phone off”
“I’m so ashame”
“Of what?” Vivian sat properly looking at her while she remained silent with her face down. “Talk to me, what is going on?” she added.
“Vivian?” Linda called and raised her face in tears which surprised Vivian. “I.. i.. i am pregnant” she said.
“You are what?!”
“I swear is never my intention. I don’t know how it happened..”
“Oh, God! And who is responsible?”
“Sam is responsible but has denied it”
“Jeez!” Vivian exclaimed in amazement.
“You are the only person that knows about this” Linda continued in tears. “I dont even know how Tochi will feel about it and my parents too. Please, promise me you won’t tell anybody”
“But they must know!”
“I know, but not now! Please, i beg you”
Vivian stared at her for a while and gave her a hug.
Mrs Mbakwe had a grey hair all over her head. She was a bit older that before and Jennifer had been attending to her as the only mother she had. She had also been meaning to tell her about her misfortune to get a boyfriend talk less a suitor but she didn’t know how to bring up the topic. She came out from the house where her mother was peeling cassava outside. She wore a jean trouser looking beautiful on her parked natural hair.
“Mama, i want to see Calista for her wedding preparation” she said with a low voice.
“Okay my daughter” she replied then Jennifer walked out as she stared at her.
Calista’s house was a bungalow with staircase before it. Jennifer greeted Mr and Mrs Jacob who were outside then entered into the house to finally meet Calista in her room. She could see different shiny clothes on the bed and other wedding materials.
“Thank God you came on time” Calista told her.
“Yeah, i promised you that nah” she replied and sat on the bed. Calista wore several clothes and asked her how they looked on her which she also replied positively.
“Are you aware that Esther is getting married this month too?” Calista broke the fun.
“Esther nah, Esther Godwin”
“Oh, i know. She’s getting married to Chester”
“Yes, isn’t it wonderful?”
“It is” Jennifer became sad with her face down. When Calista noticed it, she dropped the clothes in her hand and went to her instantly.
“Why are you sad again? I have told you is turn by turn. Your man will surely come”
“But when?” Jennifer raised her head in tears. “When do you think that will happen when i barely have a boyfriend talk less the one that will propose to me. Calista, what have i done? Why is my own life different from others? Please, tell me. Must i continue like this and suffer emotionally?” she cried then Calista embraced her again.
“I have an idea” she said and looked into her eyes. “I know how weird this will sound but don’t you think the problem is spiritual?”
“What do you mean?” Jennifer asked disdainfully.
“Jennifer, you and i know that your mother involves in this love diabolical stuff. Don’t you think is affecting you spiritually too?”
Jennifer stared at her speechless because she had never thought of that.
Calista continued, “I think you need salvation, deliverance or whatever! You need to see a pastor. Think about it my dear friend” she concluded, yet Jennifer remained speechless staring at her.
Mr Goodness, Edwin’s father was about to go out when he met a beautiful chocolate girl outside his compound. He dressed like someone who works in an office, and of course he was working as a cleck in a company. So, since he had never seen the girl’s face before he asked, “Who are you?”
“Good evening, sir” the girl greeted with all humility and respect smiling too. “My name is Melody Smith. I’m a friend of Edwin, your son”
“Okay, he’s inside” “Edwin!” he shouted. “You have a visitor” he added and went out….
Kingsley stood before Mr and Mrs Thompson, Linda’s parents in front of their house. He wore a white canvas and a jean trouser with golden necklace round his neck. He was a complete resemblance of a foreigner. He had introduced himself and asked about Linda. Just before the parents replied, Linda stepped in and behaved as if she didn’t know who Kingsley is. The mother looked into her eyes and examined her body suspiciously.
“Linda, you look pail. Are you okay?” she asked.
“I’m fine, Mummy” she replied with a hand on her neck.
“You don’t look okay to me. Well, your friend from abroad has come to see you”
Linda glanced at Kingsley and greeted with a low voice. Just then, she covered her mouth with a hand and ran out to vomit…
